CandleDear Family of Betty,
I have known Betty from before she was married. I have fond memories visiting her parents in their home over those years and recall Betty playing the piano for us. She was able to live a LONG life for the Lord and in God's Assembly, which is the most important life to live. May you find comfort she was a lovely & cheerful lady and you were blessed to have her as your Mother/.grandmother. May the funeral service bring blessing to saint and sinner.

Connie, Jeff, and families,
Our deepest sympathies to you all with the loss of such a fine Christian lady! Betty
was always happy, positive, and friendly. I have so many great memories through my life of
fun times growing up together with your family. You have been so blessed to have had such
great parents. I know my parents cherished your parents friendship. Even though your mom is
gone from our presence, she will always live on through you! Betty's life was one well-lived! Due to previous plans, we can't attend the services. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
